Use network automation to manage your multivendor networks

Because networks are growing in scope, complexity, and importance, you need a way to improve speed, efficiency, accuracy and compliance across your network—all the way to the edge. Automation helps you meet these goals and unburdens you from repeated tasks that take time away from other priority network innovation needs. Now with event-driven automation, you can flexibly respond automatically to changing conditions to make more time for innovation and work smarter. Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform is a single platform that can help automate across a variety of networking solutions, including Cisco and other multivendor technology in traditional network and new edge implementations. We will walk you through key things to know in each of these areas and take you through a demonstration. We’ll answer your questions and also point you toward additional resources for further learning opportunities.
